The Canadian government has rejected rumors going viral online that claimed it had rolled out a new immigration policy for Pakistan.
“Fraud alert: Rumors circulating online of Canadian visa lottery for Pakistanis and others are false,” wrote Canadian High Commission to Pakistan on its official Twitter account.
Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) also issued a caution on its official website against false Canadian visa lottery schemes.
Due to the perceived difficulty of the visa and immigration policies of foreign countries, people turn towards consultants. Since more and more people are now searching for information online, they fall prey to sites that scam them by offering “Guaranteed visas” , “Jobs in Canada” , “work permits” and “free scholarships”.
The reality is that there is nothing like a sure shot and anyone offering guaranteed success is lying to you.
“You do not need to hire an immigration representative to apply for a visa or for Canadian citizenship,” read a notice issued on official website.
It also claimed that these Immigration agents do not have any special relations with Canadian government officials and cannot guarantee any applicant a visa.
“Beware of internet scams and false websites,” was the final advice.
